At the beginning of 2019 there were still 116,000 apartments. If you look at the past ten years, 10,500 apartments have been added. “That roughly corresponds to the need,” says housing councilor Dietmar Prammer (SP). According to current forecasts, 1,000 new Linzers will be added every year by 2030, after which the curve will level off somewhat at 700. In 2022, 1134 apartments were completed. 2186 apartments are currently under construction, 1400 have already been approved, 1289 have been submitted for approval and 1545 are in the planning stage. A total of almost 6,500 apartments are in the “pipeline”.
More than half social housing
According to a study by the Association of Cities, Linz has the highest proportion of social housing in Austria at 55 percent. Almost 59,000 apartments are from non-profit housing developers. Most of the construction is in the eastern part of the city, in Kleinmünchen and Pichling as well as in the Bindermichl and in the Franck district. The municipal GWG alone handed over 226 new apartments last year, this year there will be 136.
80 projects already approved
The largest residential construction project is currently the second and third part of the quadrillion in the tobacco factory. WAG is building 52 rental apartments and 27 owner-occupied apartments on Ramsauerstrasse. In the third construction phase, 22 subsidized apartments are being built on Derfflingerstraße. The 80 residential projects that have already received planning permission include the Bulgari Tower with more than 280 residential units, the third construction phase of “Wohnen am See” in Pichling with 82 subsidized rental apartments and a new residential area between Seiderstrasse, Traundorfer Strasse and Schwaigaustrasse with 42 residential buildings. 67 projects were submitted, including “Living-Green” in Reuchlinstraße and construction projects by GWG (“Wimholzel-Hinterland”), Lebensquell in Pichling, WAG and GSA on Bindermichl and a construction project by LAWOG in the Franckviertel.
Renovation of the listed barracks building
One of the largest projects of the coming years will be the use of the area of the former Ebelsberg barracks and the summer grounds behind it. The “Sommerfeld Ebelsberg” district is to be built there in several stages, where living space for more than 6000 people will be created. In a first step, the eleven listed buildings on the site of the former Hiller barracks will be renovated and revitalized this year.
